The Photographic Angle (TPA) is a charitable organisation set up to promote the education of the public in the art and science of photography. We stage exhibitions that are free to enter and that travel across the UK transforming otherwise empty spaces into photographic galleries. Exhibitions comprise large scale photographs together with technical data, information about the photographic theme, boards containing inspirational quotes and boards containing hints and tips on photography. Professional, student and amateur photographers submit their work for possible inclusion in one of our travelling exhibitions, which are curated by our Head of Design. The work that we do offers the public a chance to explore this fascinating medium which can be art, a profession, or simply a pastime.

Open now - Patterns in Green Park, Reading

Last day today!

We’d love to see you in Brook Drive, Green Park from Thursday 8th to Monday 12th November, open each day from 10am to 3pm. The exhibition is taking place in multiple buildings on the Green Park site, but to make it easy, you’ll be given a map from reception in 100 Brook Drive, so that you can find them all.

The photographers who have work featured in this exhibition have taken nature, architecture, art, design and more as their inspiration.

See if you can work out what each image is!

Creativity's last stop is in Feltham

Perhaps the most challenging theme we have in terms of photography itself.

Creativity is now heading for it’s last stop on this tour, Feltham in Middlesex.

Come along to 5 & 7 New Square, Bedfont Lakes, Feltham from Wednesday 14th to Sunday 18th November, open daily from 10am to 3pm.

The images in this exhibition reflect a wide range of photographic subjects, however, they all capture and celebrate the individual photographer’s personal creative flair.

Come along to see for yourself!

Competition - Community Spirit

Our new competition, Community Spirit is now open for entries and will close on 31st December 2018 at midnight (GMT).

According to Amitai Etzioni, an Israeli-American sociologist, best known for his work on socio-economics and communitarianism, community spirit is a unity of people in society who uphold and share similar values and resources.

Community cohesion is created when individuals are willing to sacrifice their own interests and engage in activities that benefit the community.

Community spirit is a feeling of involvement in and concern for one’s local community. This may be expressed through locally organised, informal or spontaneous events and activities designed to promote the community and create a feeling of collectiveness.

The idea is that by making small personal sacrifices we can create a larger benefit for all of us. Such activities also help to educate us about our moral responsibilities and promote friendliness and understanding between local people.

For this theme we are looking for photos that depict community spirit and the effects of actions undertaken by the community to improve society and reinforce social bonds. What has happened in your community that has created a sense of pride and enhanced the sense of belonging? Can you capture this in your images?

Very interesting photos. Some of the landscapes you could feel the colour, even though they were black and white.

Our submission process has changed

Anyone who has submitted work to be included in one of our catalogues in the past, would have done this via a submissions page link. However, due to an overwhelming and fantastic response to our competitions, TPA have decided to curate its catalogues from the best of our competition entrants. The quality of work submitted to competitions over the years has been outstanding hence the decision to merge the two.

In short, anyone interested in having their work displayed at our venues should enter our competitions instead. The favourites will be contacted in due course throughout the year as and when a new catalogue print is scheduled. Please view our competitions page for further details.

All Exhibitions are free to enter!

This is just a little reminder that all of our photography exhibitions are free to have a look around. We welcome group visits from schools, colleges and universities and will do whatever we can, to ensure that students gain the most from their experience. Please email or give us a call on 0800 028 7338 to discuss this further.
